10NCEE - Travel Grant Award Selection Criteria

The awards are intended for university graduate students or early career professionals. Graduate students are defined as individuals who are enrolled full-time in a college or university in a graduate program at the time of the travel grant award application submittal deadline (March 7, 2014), even if the individual is slated to graduate prior to the conference (July 2014).
